The usage of PET/CT imaging in head and neck cancer

Year 2015, Volume 6, Issue 3, 91 - 101, 28.10.2015

Abstract

PET, is a non-invasive radiological technique which measures the tissue perfusion, metabolic activity and viability by using tomographical images and quantitative parameters. PET/CT is progressively becoming on routine usage in head and neck cancer staging. PET/BT makes the cancer staging easier by whole body scaning, by characterisation of the lymph nodes accurately ad by showing the presence of head neck tumors. In this review we searched the importance of PET/CT at staging of head neck tumors.

Key words: PET/CT, head and neck cancer, lymph node

Baş boyun tümörlerinde PET/BT kullanımı

Year 2015, Volume 6, Issue 3, 91 - 101, 28.10.2015

Abstract

PET dokuların perfüzyonunu, metabolik aktivitesini ve canlılığını yansıtan tomografik görüntüler ve kantitatif parametrelerin kullanıldığı non-invaziv bir görüntüleme yöntemidir. Baş ve boyun tümörlerinde evrelemede PET/BT giderek artan oranda rutin kullanıma girmektedir. PET/BT tüm vücudu tarama olanağı sağlaması ve baş boyun tümörlerinde tutulum göstermesi ve lenf nodlarını doğru bir şekilde karakterize etmesi bakımından evrelemede kolaylık sağlamaktadır. Bu yazıda baş boyun tümörleri olan hastalarda evrelemede PET/BT'nin önemini araştırdık.

Anahtar kelimeler: PET/BT, baş boyun tümörleri,lenf nodu
